Need your opinion

Recommended Posts

Bodied

About 3 months ago I was diagnosed with hsv2. My partner was also diagnosed at the same time with it. I didn’t cheat but we were both breaking out at the same time. I don’t know what to think. Every time we have sex now I get some sort of redness or sore and the breakouts continue until we stop having sex. Did she cheat and catch it, then give it to me? Idk I just really need some opinions on this, it’s kind of a messed up situation. From us having sex, could it bring out the virus? We have rough sex so their is a lot of friction

One of you might have been a carrier without knowing.

It is hard to answer your question based on the information provided.

Somebody had to have acquired it at some point in their life. 

Maybe you were checked for STDs in the past, but not checked for HSV

Yeah but now that it’s been activated, every time we’re intimate I end up breaking out now. Is that how it works? Like it’s been activated in some way

Some people report having an outbreak every time they have sex. 

Some also say their symptoms get better with time.

Ok, I just figured I would have had outbreaks when we first started having sex with one another but that was not the case. Idk it’s a finicky disease and it can be really frustrating at times

      That's exactly right, you can return to your life and get the blood test as a sleep easy in 12 weeks time (from the last episode).

      Him and his ex have regular breakouts with all the traditional symptoms and I believe he was swabbed.  So I can return to life as it was before all of this drama ? I may still look into a blood test is I am confident it is accurate

      @Laurenhelena how is this guy sure he has herpes? All sounding a bit odd to me. Yes it is very unlikely you will develop lesions now. Rubbing skin to skin is required for any feasible transmission chance. The odds of transmission with unprotected vaginal sex are of the order of 0.08% per epsiode. Halve this if a condom is worn. Compare that to chamydia that has about a 33% chance of transmission with unprotected sex; now that's contagious!

      I just feel that it’s known as such a contagious STD - I’ve been lying to my family cause when I tried to talk about it they became very anxious and begged me to tell them I hadn’t slept with him when I had - If someone told me that they slept with someone with genital herpes my mind would instantly think they had it.  So it’s unlikely then that I’m going to get symptoms now? I’m not going anything further with that guy but we have cuddled and kissed in bed with underwear on, is that ok?  Im quite sure he has hsv2 given that his ex gave it to him through a threesome  I’ve never had a cold sore

      Hey @Laurenhelena i think by your own admission you are letting fear get the better of you. Any flu symptoms (immune toxic shock) happen after the lesions, not before. Remember that most instances of sexual activity do not result in transmission of herpes. In the end it takes one exposure... but how many times has the person received oral sex from someone with HSV-1? or had sex with someone with HSV-2 even if they didn't know it was present? The UK has amongst the lowest incidence of genital HSV-2 in the world! There's a very good chance he has HSV-1. This means much lower transmission chances than you might think and even a chance it is near zero if you have an oral HSV-1 infection yourself!
